Tu Youyou’s Discovery: Finding a Cure for Malaria (She Made History)

We rated this book:


This book reminds me of COVID-19 because malaria was spreading just as fast! The girl in this book seemed sad watching the news and wanting to help all the people, just like me. But it was awesome to see that she was able to help so many people using a plant from her family history.

I hope that one day I can be a scientist and help people just like Tu Youyou. I liked seeing the equipment she used on her land and how the sickness and plant worked in her lab. And wow! Girls didn’t go school? I couldn’t imagine going to school with no girls. After me and my mommy read this book, mommy read other stuff that talked about why girls stayed home. If she had stayed home and didn’t go to school, she would have never helped all those people!
